  • "I agree with both the above. Yes, it is selfish of a suicidal person to choose this method, because in many cases the driver will never drive a train again.
    But people planning suicide are mentally unstable, and you cannot expect them to act with consideration for others.
    It seems to be so common these days, and every story like this will encourage someone else to do the same. I wonder if drivers are now getting used to the idea that, once or twice in their working lives, something like this will happen, and there is no reason for them to feel guilt.
    As for the delays to train passengers, they can all claim full refunds if delayed for over 60 minuites, and let's face it, if you went by road you would be just as likely to be delayed by some random accident. It's just one of those things that can happen at any time.
    We must still respect the person who died, for s/he must have been suffering unimaginable torment. And, as wardyt says, it may not have been suicide at all."
